By Industrial Relations Officer

PDFORRA wishes to advise its members that following discussions with Military Management it has been agreed to increase the Overseas Age limits for Corporals to a maximum of 55 years. The Amendment as delivered hereunder provides;

“The amendment to Annex D Para 108, provides a revised upper age limit for Corporals, or equivalent rank serving overseas to under 50 years on the scheduled date of deployment, or in exceptional circumstances, with the prior approval of DCOS (SP), Corporals, or equivalent rank, may be nominated for overseas deployment in staff or administrative appointments, either at HQ or unit level, up to an age limit of 55 years.”

Annex D Para 108 (b)(1) had mandated the Cpl’s could serve Overseas up to Age 45.
